The 18-year-old Moukoko has an ankle ligament injury sustained Saturday in Dortmund's league game with Werder Bremen, the Bundesliga club said Monday.

``It's a bitter message for him and for us, especially now at this stage,'' Dortmund sporting director Sebastian Kehl said.

Moukoko, who has made two appearances for Germany, scored six goals and set up four more in 18 Bundesliga appearances this season.
